I seem to be encountering various problems since the update to 73, the main one is the profile folder, I dislike the default location so have previously just put my preferred location in appdata\roaming\mozila\profiles.ini but 73 regularly ignores this and puts a basic profile in the default location and alters profile.ini. Using the profile manager does not get any better results. I am also having problems with the home page, I have set a custom page but 73 often resets this to a blank page or sometimes the default home page. I have had to resort to a 'portable' version as 73 constantly resetting things was getting so annoying but the portable does not work well as a default browser.

Hi,

Using Firefox version 83.0 on MacBook Pro 2019 16 inch model. When I pause a video on any webpage, I hear a sudden loud "crack" sound from the speakers. It also happens when I unpause, jump backward or forward in the video. If I mute the sound of the video and try to pause/unpause, there is no problem.

I checked the same situation with other browsers. There are no problems with them.

I hope there is a solution to this.

Thanks.

I hope someone can help with this. Firefox is supplying my login credentials on-screen for an often used secure website, but when I click the login button the credentials are wiped from the screen (ie. login details are now removed) and I am not logged in. If I supply the details manually, Firefox prompts me to update the stored credentials with what I've just typed. I confirm that I want it to do so and continue with the login process. Every time I log in, this sequence of events re-occurs, meaning that Firefox is - failing to use the stored credential (the login fields are blanked out when I click the login button) - failing to update my stored credentials (whenever I supply the details manually, Firefox is triggered to ask if I want to update the stored credentials with what I've just typed, indicating that the stored version is both incorrect and not being updated). Any suggestions on what I should do about this? (I don't have this problem with Safari, which is not my preferred browser.) Many thanks! Jeremy

Hi,

since about two versions (I just upgraded to 88 but this started probably a few weeks ago) the scrolling speed in the bookmark list (the bar on the left) has increased about fivefold (this is my own eyeball estimate). This is problematic because I have to be extremely delicate with my finger movement not to scroll the entire list at once : a single flick will immediately get me to the end of the list (which as it stands, spans about 8 times my screen height).

Scrolling in webpages and other places such as preferences page is fine. Other programs didn't change either, it seems confined to Firefox's bookmark list. I use my laptop's trackpad to scroll, and I'm on an up-to-date Windows10. Anyone has an idea what's happening ?

Thanks !

I've previously had no trouble like this morning's. When I try to log on to https://connect.secure.wellsfargo.com/auth/login/present I get into an endless cycle of entering username and password and getting the response "Must Enter Username to Continue" -- I have no trouble getting into their Customer Service section at https://www.wellsfargo.com/help/.

I went through resetting the password and had a long, unsatisfactory chat with one of their employees, who insisted the problem must be with my browser because, according to her eyeballs, my browser (Firefox) was not hitting their site at all. She suggested I try another browser, which I did. Using Bing, I had no trouble logging on and downloading the info I needed from my account page. She said there was nothing they could do at their end, since the problem is in my browser.

Any ideas?

I was using Firefox this morning and suddenly it stopped loading web pages. At first I thought I had lost connection with the Internet, but that wasn't the case. Other browsers worked perfectly. The weird thing is that Firefox could connect via an iPhone hotspot (using wireless), but that was the only way. I have checked everything I could think of, including completely uninstalling FF (and all supporting files) then reinstalling, but no joy.

I have already spent several hours researching and troubleshooting this, and unless this is a simple fix, I think I'm done with FF and back to Safari.

Short version: FF suddenly stopped loading pages in the middle of a session where nothing else was going on, and I can't get back on the Internet.

My Firefox just updated to version 89.00b3 this morning, and now my Gmail messages look terrible and are not rendering properly.

Newsletters from the Washington Post, Baltimore Sun and Next Door are not formatting correctly, with the text extending as a single line off the screen. Some lines don't start at the left edge, but don't begin until three-quarters across the window. A title line that should be centered and word-wrapped is displayed as a centered single line, with the left and right portions cut off by the window and not visible.

These same messages appear fine in Chrome, and Firefox had no problems yesterday, so it must be the update that 'broke' HTML rendering of the newsletters.

I need remote help. I am stuck in the middle of the download process. I got to the point of changing apps or using the defaults and I'm very nervous that i have caused an issue. I changed the ones I new I wanted to, but there was nowhere to click done, submit, etc. I really need an agent that can come on remotely and see what I have done. I attempted to reach Norton, but I couldn't get through to their AI contact person. I need help immediately.

FF 88.0.

Tried https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1278114 and it worked but only few minutes. Block video and audio does not work, about:config does not work. I have had plugin FEBE for passwords and worked well. Now it does not work because of new Firefox in 2017. I have found i can export/import through Firefox but one problem: i need go to about:config and add something for import or export. What are programmers doing?? If you don´t know how to program something, don´t do it.

I just updated to Firefox 88.0 on my Macbook Pro running MacOS Big Sur 11.2.3. If I restart my laptop, all my dock apps work as they are supposed to. I can click on any of them and they will open up. If open Firefox, the first 6 dock apps freeze up. I cannot open them from the dock or even drag them off the dock. All other dock apps operate fine from the 7th one on to the right. This is all new as I have used Firefox as my main browser for years. i can use Safari and everything works properly. I prefer Firefox.

Any suggestions or ideas are appreciated. Tom

Hello community, Long time firefox user here, my firefox browser keeps crashing a few minutes while in use. Every time it crashes I need to reset my proxy settings to have internet connection. Safari and chrome has no issues. Problem started when I upgraded my macbook from High sierra to Catalina. I'm running version 87 64bit, I tried downgrading to 82 and worked my way up in different version. Problem persisted, the I tried running Firefox on safe mode and clearing Cache. Problem still persist, I do not know what else to do. Someone please help. I'm running Catalina 10.15.7, I attached a screenshot of my crash reports for some insight.

I appreciate anything anyone can do.
